Good mask on front clear mask

On my other vehicles, bikes and cars, I generally use a Meguires cleaner wax with great results. The coach has a clear mask on the front and I know that products good for one finish can have poor or disastrous results for others. My goals would be a durable finish that resists bugs and grime. For the sides a quick on/quick off would be the choice. If the same product was safe and suitable for paint and glass that would be a plus. I have used Simple Green and a lot of grease, elbow grease, to get the bugs off and I want them to stay off. Plan a good coating of Rain-X for the windshield. I found on other vehicles that love bugs come off easily.

As far as bug removal, I've tried on different occasions various "de-buggers", dryer sheets, peroxide, etc., and found that elbow grease, good soap, works well.

You will find many on this forum use Aerospace 303 on their Diamond Shield per recommendation from the manufacturer. My thing is, "If it's rubber or Plastic, 303 it". I buy the stuff by the gallon.

As far as bugs, I use a Norwex Kitchen Cloth with just plain water. Works better than anything I have ever tried and with plain water does not bother the finish or wax. People think I'm exaggerating but if you try this cloth, you will become a believer.
I wrap the cloth over the sponge on my extend a pole sponge/squeegee and without using a ladder, the bugs are gone with minimal scrubbing.

If you're new to Diamond Shield like masks, I STRONGLY recommend you keep it sealed(303). Once the dreaded mold starts under it, it just gets worse without any remedy, unless you remove it like I and many others have had to do. You mentioned "Love Bugs", which means you're probably in Florida. Heat & humidity is how the mold gets started, out west not so much because of low humidity.

I have always waxed my front cap with Rejex including the windshield. It acts like rain-x on glass and makes bug removal relatively easy. I recently purchased two bottles of 303 to give it a try so I can't yet compare the two but I have been pleased with Rejex.
